Cutting The Large Block Of Marble Into Smaller Blocks Of Marble

 
After the block of marble has been cut away from the mountain, it's size is still too large to work with or even transport to another location. Heavy equipment is used to push the block of marble to a more open area. Once it is situated, the workers start cutting this huge block into smaller blocks that can be more easily transported and processed into finished marble products.
 
The cutting is done in the same fashion as when the block was cut away from the mountain with the exception that holes will not be required.
